Today’s question: “How important is it to select organic mushrooms? Any specific risks to conventional versus organic?
My immediate thought is that mushrooms are no different than any other vegetable. Organics have fewer pesticides and a good chance of tasting better. But I don’t know anything more specific. Anyone else want to weigh in on this?
